Singer Ryan Parker has outdone himself this time as he strums a cautionary ballad about Charles Barkley profligate gambling to the tune of Kenny Rogers' The Gambler.

Last week, the Wynn Las Vegas, an upscale casino resort, filed a civil complaint saying that Barkley still owned the gambling hall $400,000 in unpaid markers from back in October. Barkley is a big Vegas guy and in interviews has related his exploits of occasions when he has won and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

His famous quote: "Do I have a gambling problem? Yeah, I do have a gambling problem. But I don't consider it a problem because I can afford to gamble."

After the Clark County district attorney got involved and started talking criminal complaint last week, Barkey said it was all his fault and promised to pay up. Enjoy the tune, you may have to turn the sound just a bit at the lower right of the video screen, there's a volume regulator to the right of the little loudspeaker icon.
